The Birkin

The Birkin

Who could have imagined that one of the most coveted objects of recent decades would be born in the sky, in 1984, on a flight from Paris to London? British actress Jane Birkin, sitting next to Jean-Louis Dumas, Executive Chairman of Hermès (1978-2006), was complaining that she couldn't find a bag suitable for her needs as a young mother.

A born creator with a keen eye, he immediately sketched a supple and spacious rectangular holdall with a burnished flap and saddle stitching. With a dedicated space for her baby’s bottles!

Heritage leather

  • The Birkin is available in a rare heritage leather with unique character. Entirely vegetable-tanned natural cowhide has an exceptionally transparent finish that gains a patina and becomes even more beautiful over time. Smooth or grained, this leather in a natural shade emphasizes the Birkin’s clean lines and will appeal to connoisseurs.

The Birkin family

  • Birkin Faubourg tropical

    The Birkin tells an epic story with flair: a design by the creative duo Octave Marsal and Théo de Gueltzl, embroidered in Lunéville stitch, plunges the emblematic Faubourg Saint-Honoré store into the heart of a luxuriant jungle. In an ultimate display of prowess, the design extends over the leather of the flap and the base of the bag.

  • Birkin 3-en-1

    Good things come in threes with the Birkin! The famous tote holdall becomes effortlessly light with a single, swift gesture. One: a canvas clutch topped with the emblematic leather flap. Two: a leather tote with side straps and turnlock. And three: clutch and tote together recreate the eternal Birkin.

In the bag

The Mosaïque au 24 bag finds itself at the center of a love triangle. Left behind on a public bench, it was soon found by a young man. Inside, a postcard and an address. Thus begins a romance with a gentle Parisian vibe.
